Marlon Humphrey Still Absent From Ravens Practice

Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey is still not back at Wednesday as Baltimore gets ready for its playoff opener against the Houston Texans.

Humphrey hasn't practiced since suffering a calf injury on Dec. 31 against the Dolphins. He was seen doing some conditioning work on a side field last week.

If Humphrey is unable to suit up against the Texans, it would be his eighth game missed this season. He missed the first four after foot surgery, two because of a calf injury, and then the regular-season finale again with a calf issue.

It would be tough not having Humphrey out there versus the Texans, including red-hot quarterback C.J. Stroud and wide receiver Nico Collins, but Baltimore also didn't have Humphrey versus Houston in Week 1 and won, 25-9.

If Humphrey can't play, it would likely move Ronald Darby into the starting lineup again. Darby has played well this season in his seven starts.

The only change to the Ravens' practice participation is the absence of outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, who missed due to illness.

The big injury news for Baltimore is that tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) was a full practice participant for the first time. Wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf), outside linebacker Odafe Oweh (ankle), and linebacker Malik Harrison (groin) also all returned to full practice.

Oweh said he intends to play Saturday, and Flowers confirmed that he will do the same.

"I feel great. I'm ready to go," Flowers told reporters. "I'm ready to go with the guys, get back on the field [and] try to go get a win."

Texans Defensive Ends Dealing With Injuries

The Texans' injury report went in the other direction from the Ravens' Wednesday. Their defense is banged up.

Defensive ends Jonathan Greenard and Will Anderson Jr., who lead the team with 12.5 and 7.0 sacks, respectively, both did not practice because of ankle injuries. They were both limited the day before.

Defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins (ribs/shoulder) also did not practice for a second straight day, along with defensive end Jerry Hughes (ankle). Defensive tackle Maliek Collins (hip) was limited again.

Linebackers Christian Harris (calf), Denzel Parryman (ribs), and Blake Cashman (knee) were all limited. So were wide receivers John Metchie III (foot) and Robert Woods (hip).
